WOW! I never saw one like this before. Unfortunately the seller won't ship outside UK

Does anyone know if the wood is really Korina? I saw Korina V's from Tokai, Burny and Bacchus, but none of them had a Korina body, it was mostly Sen Ash or mahogany.

Is it? What do you think would be a price worth the Flying V?They seem to be very rare.

Is that the real market value for this item? If so, I would take 3 for the mentioned price.
Do you know where to get these?

At the Yahoo Japan Auction page do a search for orvil.
orvil instead of orville because the Japanese sellers sometimes misspell orville and the orvil search brings up orville orvill orvile and orvil hits.
I've never bought from Japan but others here have and they can fill you in on how to do it. http://forum.japanaxe.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=18

http://page16.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u19462612 http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e74760577 http://page16.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u19634427 for example.
A lot of Japanese sellers don't seem to ship overseas from what I've seen.
Sometimes they are on Ebay or other sellers might have them as well.

The Ibanez Destroyers were not korina and I don't really know if the OBG's are but I'd say probably not.

Thanks a lot! I didn't know that it is possible for people outside Japan to buy on Yahoo auctions.
The Orville you posted is so nice and reasonable priced, bt unfortunately the seller won't ship outside Japan
